Steve Seid For twenty five years, Steve Seid was a Film and Video Curator at the Pacific Film Archive, at UC Berkeley. He organized over 1,000 programs of video art, film, and new media for the PFA's public programs. Seid also oversaw an on-going video preservation project and for ten years conducted annual workshops on visual literacy for high school teachers. He has taught video aesthetics and history courses at the University of California, Berkeley, San Francisco State University, the California College of Arts, and the San Francisco Art Institute.

Following on the ambitious preservation of videotapes from the National Center for Experiments in Television (1967-1975), Seid curated Videospace (2000), a gallery exhibition dedicated to the first TV Lab. His large-scale program, Whose Side Are You On?: The Border, toured Brazil under the sponsorship of Itau Cultural. He co-curated the first museum retrospective of Ant Farm, the '60s/'70s art collective and creators of Cadillac Ranch and Media Burn, which toured internationally through 2006. Seid also curated the 52nd Robert Flaherty Film Seminar which took place at Vassar College in spring, 2006 and the Stan Brakhage Symposium, 2009.
Radical Light, a fifty year history of moving image art from the San Francisco Bay Area, made its appearance in 2010 as both a co-edited book (UCPress) and a film/video exhibition that travelled to New York, Chicago, Houston, Portland, Los Angeles, and Minneapolis. In 2013, Seid worked with the Menil Museum and the Berkeley Art Museum to co-curate Silence, a gallery exhibition honoring John Cage's 100th birthday.
